I believe it's a cheap upgrade for existing owners of View Finder cards...for them it's more affordable to spend about 85 GBP than 149 GBP for the Vpod.
But well if you've got some other ideas it doesn't really bother me.
I've ordered an upgrade for J.K. and will be very happy to get an excellent quality picture thanks to the DVI output.
I just can't believe the VPOD offers VGA output only in year 2009.
Even if it's faster, I vote for quality of image 1st, within a budget.
